The mission of the Pomona College Women’s Union is to secure positive changes for women in their personal and political lives and to work toward deconstructing gender-based constraints within both local and global contexts. We will engage The Claremont Colleges while extending our reach into our surrounding communities. The Women’s Union is committed to providing space and programming involving all genders, tailored to the diverse needs of women. In order to fulfill these commitments, we will exercise an active position against interlocking systems of oppression based on, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, and ability.
